Photovan does Lake Waikaremoana
Posted 19 June 2010 - 10:08 PM
Yesterday I left Raglan in my 'photovan' and headed through Rotorua and down to Lake Waikaremoana .
It's been 5 years since I was on that road and this picture should tell you why ...
95km of winding gravel roads ... the first time I did it was in an old Toyota 1300 and I got tired of the slow journey and started going faster around the corners until I was so car-sick I had to pull over and sleep in the back of my car 45km from the lake .
The second time I took sea-sick medication to make it easier and got a little drowsy and crashed into the side of another car on a bend .....
After that I swore I would never go on that road again but now that I have my van and stop often to take photos it makes it easier and I must say the journey was pleasant in comparison to the times I was in a hurry to finish the trip .

Then the horse walks up and says "nice lens!"

I'm sitting here in a motel [ maybe I'm getting soft ? ] looking through the pictures and the sun has just popped out outside so I'll leave it at that for now and come back in a few hours .... with more images to go through [sigh!] .

There are also some boats you can pre-book for paddling to the islands .
